the economy from going over that cliff. afl-cio president richard trumka -- it turns out he's not worried about $600 billion in tax increases and spending cuts. in prepared remarks and washington event today, richard trumka said, and please remember this, this is just beautiful -- there is, he said, no fiscal cliff. what we are facing is an obstacle course that was hastily thrown together in response to inflated rhetoric about our federal deficit. richard trumka's remarks followed a meeting with the president and others earlier in the week. joining us now to talk about taxes and the president's second term agenda, his legacy, and oh, yes, what happens to the rest of us. the author of what just happened, monica crowley and former special assistant to george w. bush, ron christie. monica, have to say, eloquent labor leader, richard trumka from a manufactured crisis. the mathematics don't matter. >> well, apparently mathematics do not matter. according to the president of united states the united states from the math doesn't matter or he simply doesn't care. this is a president has now racke

and deductions. imus: got that? organized labor's joining the conversation. tax now, cut later. richard trumka says don't worry about the deficit. >> we strongly believe we should make sure the wealthy start paying their fair share of taxes. they believe we should protect medicare aad medicaid and social security benefits from cuts and voters reject the idea that bringing down the federal budget deficit is an overriding priority. imus: you add it all up, bottom line from the statements, a deal on the fiscal cliff would mean a tax increase. no deal means we go right off the fiscal cliff and we'll get a huge tax increase. bottom line, pay up. $16 trillion in debt and richard trumka thinks controlling it should not be a priority. does that mean we will end up like greece? greece what about its death, didn't get it under control and look at them. they are rioting in the streets. severe budget cuts, more of them coming to greece. are we headed that way? we ask that question to former reagan adviser art laughter. where will stock ago today? 300 point drop. you can watch it live, opening bell, art la

to the ceo. here's what's on richard trumka's mind. he has been reminding the press that in ohio, afl-cio members are 83% white, 53% of them own guns and they voted 70% for barack obama. labor knows exactly how important it was to the president's reelection effort particularly in the swing states. what about labor law reforms? what about making the marketplace more attractive to unions and union membership? mitt romney ran as if the president had put in place big sweeping labor law changes, but the obama administration didn't affect midge change in the first term. there's lots of things left on the labor agenda like a bill to make it easier for unions to get recognized and harder for companies to block unions from forming. could it be in the realm of possibility in the second term obama administration? or yesterday when the president spoke at arlington national cemetery, he touched on something that should be in the realm of possibility. the month's long backlog that our new veterans are facing when they try to access the benefits they have earned when they get home from war. >> no ve

to be impacted with the fiscal cliff. afl/cio president richard trumka, is not worried at all. here's what he says. he says, the most frustrating thing about washington, d.c. is the way political insiders create a self-reinforcing reality out of nonsense. take what the media are calling the fiscal cliff there is no fiscal cliff. what we're facing is an obstacle course with a manufactured crisis thrown together in response to inflated rhetoric about our federal deficit. this is amazing that a union boss would tell us there's no fiscal cliff. we don't have a debt problem. we only owe about 16 trillion dollars that's what our debt is, surely we can pay that off, we'll just ask every american to write a big fat check for about $60,000 a piece. would you write yours and send it. if you are dumb enough to do it, send it to me, don't send it to the government. i'd be delighted to have it. mr. trumka ought to be talking to some of the people in the union that would not budge with the hostess baking company. we're losing hostess, they're gone. snowballs, hostess cakes, ding-dongs, twinkies, they will
